Elton John put on a show as host of ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend, marking only his second appearance on the long running sketch comedy show.
In his opening monologue, John proclaimed “the bitch is back” before launching into a series of jokes about his new baby boy, whom John said was born with “ten fingers, ten toes, and $400 million dollars.” John also joked about Lady Gaga being his son’s (named Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John) godmother.
As for the actual sketches, many seemed to rely on jokes about John’s British roots, his flamboyant stage persona and his sexuality, including one sketch titled ‘The Old West,’ in which John played, well, a flamboyant cowboy. (Really, can you blame the writers? We’re still trying to figure out why John hosted in the first place.)
